I bought a garden chiper on EBAY. I'd spoken to a transport company beforehand and thought everything was in place when I won the item. When I phoned to book the collection, the response was "It will be on a pallet, won't it?" Buying from EBAY, from a domestic property means that pallets and banding are out. I was left high and dry.
Luckily I stumpled upon uShip, which very neatly integrates with EBAY. I easily imported the details from EBAY and had a bid for the shipping within a day. As the vendor was going on holiday 5 days later, I needed a prompt collection. The chipper also needed some parts removing to fit in the van.
The delivery point was 530 miles to the north. The chipper was delivered as promised on Monday morning to the highlands of Scotland.
I'd have no hesitation in using uShip and Aaron Tyler Courier again.
